THE BUZZ
Along with singing the unofficial Roswell anthem (”Here With Me”), this literary agent-turned-singer achieved ”who’s that?” status last week by appearing on Saturday Night Live with Eminem, who samples her ”Thank You” on his celeb-stalker diatribe ”Stan.”
DISCOVERY
After impressing Arista Records’ diva-spotter Clive Davis, Dido Armstrong was signed to the label’s U.K. division in 1997 (her first name comes from The Aeneid).
HAS SHE SEEN ROSWELL?
”It’s good, but I don’t have the patience to stick with a series. The only thing I love is The Sopranos.”
ON THE CONTROVERSIAL EMINEM
His album ”doesn’t offend me. I listen to it and I hear a story. He’s a storyteller…. He just happens to write about things that are darker.”
FYI
Just hours after SNL, a family emergency had Armstrong racing home to England (according to Dido, all is now fine).
NEXT
Stops on the Limp Bizkit/Eminem tour, a role in the ”Stan” video, and a U.K. release for No Angel, which just hit Billboard‘s top 50 in the U.S.
